5 Christmas songs to fill your home with festive cheer
Of all Christmas traditions, kissing under the mistletoe is one that should be supplanted. Its awkwardly contrived romanticism lacks spontaneity, and is a flagrant breach of social distancing guidelines. Instead, allow us to introduce to you a fresh, tech-driven alternative: dancing under the ceiling speakers.
The Lithe Audio ceiling speaker range has been created with one aim in mind: to transform your home audio experience. Instead of cluttering your domestic space with extra furniture and wiring, our integrated speaker solution provides maximum surface area for your festive gambols.
So to help you get the most out of your ceiling speaker experience, we’ve collated some of our favourite Christmas songs to get your and your family in the mood.
The Pogues - Fairytale of New York
This track has everything: tenderness and sensitivity, while also providing ample dancing opportunities for those who appreciate the jaunty folk rhythms The Pogues have always specialised in. In just over 4 minutes, the listener is subjected to the whole gamut of human emotion. It therefore represents the trials and tribulations of the Christmas period itself.
Mariah Carey - All I Want for Christmas
An obvious choice, but a true Christmas classic. From the soulful opening few lines to the emphatically danceable chorus, this has that familiarity and togetherness that we all need at this time of the year. It also offers up some comic moments as friends and family at various degrees of intoxication attempt to match Mariah's impressive vocal range.
Michael Buble - Christmas
Our next entry on the list isn’t a song, it’s an entire compilation. Because just like the perfect festive platter, limiting ourselves to just one Buble track would leave us feeling unsated. Accompanied by the cosy visuals of a crackling fireplace, the dulcet tones of everyone’s favourite Christmas crooner takes us on a journey through some of the most well loved festive songs, including Silent Night, and It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas.
JohnLennon & Yoko Ono - Happy Xmas (War Is Over)
If you like your Christmas songs infused with sociopolitical commentary, then look no further than this classic. Replete with angelic vocal harmonies and masterly lyrics, this is a chorus to be chanted, not sang. An important counterweight to the rampant commercialism of most entries in the pantheon of Christmas songs.
The Killers - Don’t Shoot me Santa
This final entry is arguably nowhere near entering the traditional canon of Christmas tunes, but its inclusion is primarily due to the fact that it's The Killers. And like any Killers track, its thumping bassline and anthemic vocal melody is enough to get even the most stubborn of Scrooges up on their feet.
